Idle Champion Spotlight: Rust on the Harbour 
Posted in Idle Champions.

Many are excited by the thrilling life of a pirate on the high sea. But all the swashbuckling skills in the world cannot help when you are afraid of water!

Rust on the Harbour is the sweetest, nicest sellsword to ever be shot out of a cannon! He joins fellow Oxventure Guild members Corazón and Prudence in the Idle Champions roster during Midwinter 5.

I. Rust

Dungeons & Dragons Rust

    Rust on the Harbour is a former pirate who gave up a life at sea because it was far too wet. His deadly skills are in contrast to his sweet nature and short attention span, and he enjoys seeing others succeed even if they are supposed to be antagonists. Now trying life as an adventurer on land, he'll lend his roguish skills to anyone who can give him that which his heart desires most: one gold piece.

Rust is a Support and Gold Find Champion whose excitement to find coin helps the rest of the formation increase their gold find. When you want to add him to your formation you can swap him with Jamilah (Slot 11).

III. Rust's Design

We are fortunate to get to work with a huge variety of liveplay D&D series, but it's a rare treat to be able to include the Dungeon Master as one of the Content Creators who bring a Champion to our game. So we're very happy that our third Champion from the Oxventure crew from Outside Xbox and Outside Xtra comes from DM Johnny Chiodini! They created Rust as their character for a Saltmarsh campaign, and brought the supportive tabaxi in as an NPC for Oxventure to enjoy. Along with their impressive DM skills, Johnny has made content for Eurogamer, GameSpot, and Dicebreaker, and currently creates videos about tabletop and video games for their Patreon.

Rust does his best to help his allies be more deadly on the battlefield, but his main focus is cashing in on all the coin he can collect! He's always on the hunt for One Gold Piece, which he will happily grab from the field when dropped by a defeated enemy. As long as he holds a precious coin in his claws, he buffs the damage bonus to Highest Bidder and the gold find bonus for Rust For Hire. Plus the more Oxventurers Guild Champions there are in the formation, the more likely he'll find a shiny gold piece while saying Hello, Friends!

All of Rust's Specializations focus on his beloved One Gold Piece. If it's Especially Shiny he simply increases his bonuses to gold find and Champion damage. But if there are many Oxventurers Guild Champions nearby he can base his buff on his Close Friends. This deadly tabaxi can shoot enemies with his pistols or stab them with his rapier, but he might drop his shiny gold piece when he leaps into melee combat. So his Rust Reloaded Specialization means he will only attack with his pistols, keeping that coin safer from being dropped. But sometimes Rust needs to do something epic, even if there's a chance he'll lose his gold piece, and that's when he'll load himself into a cannon to be launched across the battlefield in his Ultimate Attack, Cannonball!

IV. Rust's Abilities

Basic Attack

Rust has two different attacks that he rotates through. He attacks once with Bang Bang, then drops his pistols and will attack with his Rapier three times before retrieving the pistols and starting over.
  • Bang Bang — Rust shoots a random enemy with his pistols, once from each pistol. Rust can not lose his shiny gold piece when he attacks with his pistols.
  • Stabby Stabby — Rust leaps out and stabs a random enemy with his Rapier once. He might lose his shiny gold piece while doing this.

Formation Abilities

  • One Gold Piece — Rust has a 2% chance to gain a shiny gold piece from any kill. While holding this gold piece, the effects of his Rust For Hire and Highest Bidder abilities are increased by 200% each. Rust has a 3% chance to accidentally lose the gold piece each time he attacks with his Rapier.
  • Rust For Hire — Rust increases your gold find by 100%.
  • Highest Bidder — Rust increases the damage of all Champions by 100% for each order of magnitude of your Gold Find percentage.
    • For example, if your gold find is 2.1e15%, then this bonus is multiplied by 15.
  • Hello, Friends! — Rust's chance for One Gold Piece to find a shiny gold piece from any kill is increased by 100% for each other Oxventurers Guild Champion in the formation, stacking additively and then applying multiplicatively.


  • Especially Shiny — Increase the ability bonus of One Gold Piece by 100%.
  • Close Friends — The ability bonus of One Gold Piece is increased by 100% for each other Oxventurers Guild Champion within 2 slots, stacking multiplicatively.
  • Rust Reloaded — Rust now only attacks with his Pistols and can only lose his One Gold Piece during his ultimate attack.

Ultimate Ability

  • Cannonball! — Rust loads himself into a cannon and fires himself toward the enemies, dealing damage in a large area upon landing. When using his ultimate, Rust has a 40% chance of dropping his shiny gold piece midway through his flight. This chance is reduced by 2.5% for every 4.5 seconds of ultimate cooldown reduction he has, capped at a 75% reduction
